Andy in the water

My cousin sends me a lot of great photos. I did a couple of versions of this one. This is an example of a painting needing to be done in oils, I think. 

The first version was a watercolor. The angle of the head was awkward and I didn’t really get it at all. 
I thought the pencil sketch was better. The main image if the sketch filled in with watercolor. Unfortunately it was in a sketchbook and the paper crinkled up. Oh well. 

Here is my cousin’s photo. I’m not going to give up on this one quite yet!

    I actually like them all. They may not be exact replicas, but they all get the feeling of floating. (K)

    The top one is the most watercolorish, but I like them all too. I think it would be much more difficult to do in oils.

    The toes are tricky … only four visible on each foot. Still, cartoonists often content themselves with three fingers …
